This study presents a framework for the development of the value chain of agricultural products in Kosovo, in particular in the fruit and vegetable sector, as a sector with the potential to replace import and increase export. Value chain analysis plays an important role in understanding efficiency in the chain as well as the competencies of the stakeholders influencing the chain, to avoid competing challenges and to increase the potential for improving the value chain performance. The barriers to value chain development such as, poor infrastructure, lack of resources and difficulties in reformist policies in the sector must first be identified in order to improve chain performance. Second, identifying opportunities for performance improvement across all value chain leads to competitiveness increase.
Keywords: Value chain performance, increased competitiveness, import substitution, increased exports.
